A Bad Case of Stripes - David Shannon

Camilla LOVES lima beans but her friends do not and she wants to be just like them. Camilla comes down with a bad case of the stripes and is teased at school for her colors and patterns. After going through many different transformations, Camilla is convinced to eat a lima bean and is cured!! I would use this book to talk to the students about differences and how its okay to like something another person may not. They could then decorate themselves with stripes and identify what may be their "lima bean".
